We get letters: Thanks for giving the victims a voice

mailbag

We received the following e-mail recently…

I just wanted to say thank you. A few years ago, I came across a link for this site. As an abuse victim, I feel it’s important that these kids get their stories told. People should know what they’ve been through. People should love them and in more tragic cases, miss them. Even if they’ve never met them. About 2 years ago, my husband and I were trying to conceive our first child. It wasn’t going very well, and I fell into a deep depression. While reading your site, my heart would constantly break with every story posted. It was unfair that these monsters were given the greatest gift that the universe had to offer, and abused and neglected them. I’m proud to say that I am now a mother to a beautiful healthy 9 month baby boy. I believe that your site helps others to realize that they must always, ALWAYS, be aware of the people they bring around their children. I just wish this site existed and was available to my parents while I was growing up. Maybe life wouldn’t have been so hard for me.

But enough of the sob story, I just wanted to thank you. All of you, for giving victims voices. Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!

It is we who should thank you. Thanks to letters like this it makes us realize that we are making a difference even with our snark, sarcasm and foul language.

See kids, it’s not all hate mail

We get letters: I am about to report your toxic website

toxic

I received the following e-mail the other day…

Who the hell do u think u are? I am about to report your toxic website to the authorities. I have been involved with a story that you retards reported on your stupid site and I can guarentee you idiots, that none of it was true. Get your facts right before you shame and humiliate an innocent person. Dickheads. I have a police report to back up….. Do u? Didn’t think so.

I have a policy here that if charges are dropped or if someone has been found not guilty I will remove a story if requested. The e-mail had the person’s name attached to it and I could not find any mention of this person on this site. I did some further investigation and found that the e-mail came from Australia which means probably by law the suspect’s name wasn’t made public. However being the magnanimous guy that I am I reached out to this person albeit probably not in the most friendly way possible…

Or you could tell me what story it is and I can have it removed.

To which I received the reply…

How about you remove them all. Your stories are false. Why don’t you put yourself on your site. Dickhead.

How about because I haven’t been arrested for child abuse?

Anyway I guess we have to go through this again. This site is a blog. We’re not reporters or journalists. We get our information from the news media. If anything that we posted is untrue then your issue is with whatever news source we used, Also let the record show that I was willing to have whatever story it was removed.

Besides, what authorities are you going to, the Internet Police?

So where have we been?

I’ve been getting some e-mails lately that basically say “This site was better when you guys posted every day. It’s really gone downhill.” To that I say, fuck you.

We’re not here to do your bidding. Believe it or not some of us actually have lives outside of this website and real world responsibilities that come before some crappy blog.

Some of you even seem to think you can do a better job than we do. Go right ahead. Hell, I’ll even throw a link or two up if you want people to read your ‘better’ blog. Then we’ll see how often you update your blog.

Until then get off my ass and we’ll update when we damn well feel like it.

Charges dismissed against Giovanni Gonzalez’s father

Judge dismisses charges against father of Giovanni Gonzalez, who disappeared in Lynn five years ago:

Sad news out of Massachusetts today when an Essex County Superior Court judge dismissed charges of parental kidnapping against Ernesto Gonzalez. Gonzalez is the main person of interest in the 2008 disappearance of his son, 5-year-old Giovanni Gonzalez. Giovanni was visiting his dad for a weekend but when it came time to return Giovanni to his mother Ernesto Gonzalez never returned him. He claims that he murdered Giovanni but investigators say there is no evidence to those claims.

Unfortunately this is not surprising as earlier this year Ernesto Gonzalez was ruled mentally incompetent to stand trial.

Gonzalez is far from a free man though. He’s been committed to a state mental facility who just requested an extension on his current stay. Not to mention he also assaulted an inmate and a guard.

Due to the lack of evidence I’m still hoping against hope that Giovanni is alive and that hopefully some new program or crime show will bring his story to at least a national audience.

Baby Has Skull Fracture, Dad Says He “Tripped On A Cord”, And Mom Shoots Dad

You read that title right. Let me introduce you to a Missouri Family–The Klebers.

Steven Kleber

Long story short, one of their two children was 7 weeks old when Steven Kleber supposedly “tripped on an electrical cord” and afterward suffered from bleeding on both sides of the brain and a skull fracture. Apparently that just happens when a parent trips (but doesn’t fall) on something. Let me tell you about the time my daughter got shaken baby syndrome because I tripped while holding her.

Well, I would tell you about that if that had ever happened.

This was when his wife at the time (Lindsey) was on a trip visiting her father. Steven didn’t even think to mention the incident until after they went to three different hospitals and learned about her injuries. Lindsey, rightfully, was furious.

So it gets better. Is better the right term? Not sure.  Baby Mya’s mother and former wife to Steven, Lindsey Kleber, was so worried after talking to prosecutors that her husband would pretty much get away with such a horrible act that she abducted him and shot him in the back when he ran off. He has recovered and is still facing child abuse charges. Lindsey is now serving a 3-year sentence for her acts toward her former husband.

I’m honestly not sure how I feel about this whole case. Part of me says “GO MOM, SHOOT THAT MOTHERFUCKER” but uhhh… I’m normally a peaceful person… Okay, that’s a lie. Or is it? I don’t know. I’m confusing myself. Either way, this is a strange case all around.

Baby Mya is now three years old and has suffered from seizures since the incident.

Ice Cream: Something Worth Killing Over? NO

It’s been a while since I posted on this blog, but I’m going to keep this nice and short.

A mom killed her son over ICE CREAM.

ICE. CREAM.

She (Robin Erwin) called 911 claiming that her son had “walked into the knife” she’d been holding. He was stabbed once, yes, but it was no accident. He was stabbed in the chest.

You don’t just walk into someone “HEY, how are you doin–oh my GOD I just walked into your knife and it’s in my heart!” No. You walk in like “HEY. How you doin-ow! That knife poked me!”

She is being charged with murder and thankfully, countless people are upset that the mother murdered her son over ice cream. It was an argument that neighbors heard.

Three words: What. The. Fuck.

Robin Erwin, the lady who stabs people over ice cream.
